We went on a Friday night around 7:30 so naturally it was busy. The server was prompt and friendly. We all had the beef on weck, which, while a good amount and accompanied by a small Au Jus cup, was rather dry. Even though there...More

It is a good Irish bar and grill. I have been to Ireland and the food here is better than there (not saying a lot). But, the food is good and the prices are decent.

Recommended by our hotel and we definitely liked it. Traditional Irish pub with many beers on tap and some good different items on the menu. I had a burger topped with mashed potatoes and peameal bacon tremendous. Very good bartender and waitress.

Great wings and beef-on-weck sandwiches. Big drinks (good value for the money). Friendly staff. Clean. A great place to meet up with friends. Each time I go back home to visit Buffalo, we always wind up here.

Our car salesman recommended Brennan's and they didn't disappoint. Husband had the Black and Blue burger which he enjoyed tremendously. I had a Mott and Canal traditional cheeseburger with cheddar which was plentiful, and a nice cold pint off their extensive beer menu. The fries...More

The food and service were fine. The atmosphere was good for a night out drinking. Loud, impersonal and crowded( which would indicate that it has found its niche).
